As the temperatures start to drop, stay cozy at Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center who is presenting a full lineup of fall films, including Breathe, Faces Places, and Victoria & Abdul.

Breathe, directed by Andy Serkis, is based on the inspiring true love story between Robin and Diana Cavendish, who are played by Academy Award nominee Andrew Garfield and Golden Globe winner Claire Foy. The adventurous couple refuses to give up in the face of a devastating disease. Vanity Fair said the film was "A swoon-worthy romance," while Rolling Stone said it "Celebrates the triumph of the human spirit."

Breathe is rated PG-13 and has a running time of 117 minutes. Showtimes and dates are Friday, November 3 at 7 p.m., Saturday, November 4 at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., and Sunday, November 5 at 4 p.m.

Faces Places tells the story of 89-year old Agnes Varda, one of the leading figures of the French New Wave, and acclaimed 33-year old French photographer and muralist JR who teamed up to co-direct this enchanting documentary. Together the duo travel around the villages of France in JR's photo truck meeting locals, learning their stories, and producing epic-size portraits. Faces Places documents these heart-warming encounters as well as the unlikely, tender friendship that develops along the journey. "There's never been a film quite like this one," lauded The Wall Street Journal and Rolling Stone raved it's "Sheer perfection. French New Wave veteran Agnes Varda and the young photographer JR leap fearlessly into the art of making art in the year's best and most beguiling doc."

The PG, 90-minute French film will show on Friday, November 17 at 7 p.m., Saturday, November 18 at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., and Sunday, November 19 at 4 p.m.

Experience the extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria's remarkable rule with the film Victoria & Abdul. A young clerk travels from India to participate in the Queen's Golden Jubilee and is surprised to find favor with the Queen herself (Academy Award winner Judi Dench). The pair forges an unexpected and devoted alliance to each other all while the inner circle attempt to destroy it. "...another unimpeachable performance from Dench...," said The Hollywood Reporter and it was "A must-see! Truly brilliant," according to Fox Chicago.

The PG-13 English film has a running time of 111 minutes. Victoria & Abdul will show on Friday, November 24 at 7 p.m., Saturday, November 25 at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., and Sunday, November 26 at 4 p.m.
